The R3 Center for Innovation in Science Education (R3ISE), a new center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, is hosting a symposium on Monday, April 23. The Inaugural Katharine E. Welsh Symposium will explore ways in which science education can better develop critical thinkers and astute communicators – essential skills for scientists at a time when science is under increased scrutiny.
The event will be webcast here.
The Center’s mission is to, in addition to enhancing students’ capacities to think and to communicate, view science in a broader, meaningful context and through the lens of social responsibility. R3 stands for Rigor, Responsibility and Reproducibility in scientific practice, and are considered the foundational basis of scientific inquiry.
Keynote speaker, Mr. David Epstein, author of the bestselling book “The Sports Gene: Inside the Science of Extraordinary Athletic Performance,” will also moderate a panel on communicating science to experts, friends and the public. Mr. Epstein is a reporter at ProPublica.
